ZiyCharMatt's curator insight, February 24, 2015 1:15 PM

This article talks about how the modern world is affecting the design of cities. With the expanding influence of the internet and digital media on people lives, city planners are beginning to build their cities around technologies and integrating technologies in such areas of the city as street lamps,  sidewalks and even sewage systems. I found this article extremely informative and think that using technology in city planning is a very good idea.

ZiyCharMatt's curator insight, February 24, 2015 1:16 PM

This article talks about the new "sharing economy" which involves people sharing accommodation and transport in exchange for money. It also talks about how walkable, attractive cites would greatly stimulate this sector and the economy in general. It seems to champion a more european city: pedestrianized and attractive, over the american model of urban sprawl. I found this article extremely informative and as an 18 year old without a car I wholeheartedly support this kind of city!
